This is what the LORD says to you: `Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God's. 16 Tomorrow march down against them. They will be climbing up by the Pass of Ziz, and you will find them at the end of the gorge in the Desert of Jeruel. 17 You will not have to fight this battle.

Elisha 2 KI 6: 13 "Go, find out where he is, " the king ordered, "so I can send men and capture him. " The report came back: "He is in Dothan. " 14 Then he sent horses and chariots and a strong force there. They went by night and surrounded the city. 15 When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. "Oh, my lord, what shall we do? " the servant asked. 16 "Don't be afraid, " the prophet answered. "Those who are with us are more than those who are with them. “ 17 And Elisha prayed, "O LORD, open his eyes so he may see. " Then the LORD opened the servant's eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
The Enemy Acknowledges the Lord’s Authority MT 8: 28 When he arrived at the other side in the region of the Gadarenes, two demon-possessed men coming from the tombs met him. They were so violent that no one could pass that way. 29 "What do you want with us, Son of God? " they shouted. "Have you come here to torture us before the appointed time? “ 30 Some distance from them a large herd of pigs was feeding. 31 The demons begged Jesus, "If you drive us out, send us into the herd of pigs. “ 32 He said to them, "Go!" So they came out and went into the pigs, and the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and died in the water.
